Community Building

We are dedicated to empowering residents to collaborate across neighborhoods while celebrating a shared identity and safe community.

Mid-North Quality of Life Plan

The Mid-North Quality of Life Plan was developed by approximately 492 neighborhood stakeholders and 79 organizations to establish a unified vision for six Mid-North neighborhoods – Crown Hill, Highland Vicinity, Historic Meridian Park, Historic Watson Park, Mapleton-Fall Creek, and Meridian Highland.

The plan is meant to capture the energy the Mid-North community has for making it a better place to live, learn, work, and play. It’s a living guide with key focus areas that are revisited periodically, so it consistently reflects the priorities and opportunities of our neighborhoods.

MFCDC implements the Mid-North Quality of Life Plan in cooperation with neighbors, community leaders, stakeholders, and partners.
